In 2017 Whalley Rangers and Manchester City Council will be working together to tackle fly tipping in Whalley Range.
The campaign will focus on the avenues and back alleys along Clarendon Road, Bury and Cromwell Avenues and other fly tipping hot spots:
The Council’s powers have just been increased so that Fixed Penalty Notices up to £400 can be issued. The maximum penalty for fly tipping is a £50,000 fine and/or 12 months in prison.
Local residents are fed up with their neighbourhoods being blighted by piles of rubbish being left on the pavement and in back alleys.
The campaign begins in March 2017 and will:
- Raise awareness of fly tipping as an offence – and as anti-social behaviour – through leaflets, signs and stickers.
- Work with community groups, landlords and letting agents, to encourage responsible behaviour.
- Systematically clean the worst affected neighbourhoods and start making them more attractive and safe.
